Best of Czech Republic
From Bohemia to Moravia, explore what the friendly Czech Republic has to offer. There isn’t a bad season to go on vacation to the Czech Republic: visit in winter for dreamy snow wonderlands and Christmas markets, spring for a colorful countryside and hikes, or summer for warm temperatures, outdoor sports, and concerts. Don’t forget to try the cheapest and best beers in Europe, and the delicious traditional Czech dishes.

Experience the world-class artistic side of Prague, the natural beauty of Moravia, and the countless scenic rivers across the country. Stay in grand European style hotels in the heart of the action in Prague and Brno, or on the outskirts and smaller towns for a relaxing vacation.

Czechs are very active group and very into tennis, hockey, and biking, so if you like these activities you’ll fit right in.
If you only learn one word in Czech, it should be ‘pivo’ –beer– as Czechs are famous for it and proud of their beer making tradition that is older than the founding of the States. You will forget about the American version of Budweiser with the first sips of quality Staropramen or Gambrinus. If you want more, visit the breweries of if Plzen, Ceské Budejovice, and Svijany and don’t be shy to ask locals for the name of their favorite. Try a bit of the local wines, Bohemia sehkt sparkling wine, and Moravian plum liquor slivovice to mix things up.
